Mallorca’s most dramatic scenery - and its prettiest villages - are to be found in the Tramuntana Sierra in the north-west of the island. With their craggy limestone peaks contrasting with the sea below, the rugged mountains provide a spectacular backdrop to clusters of honey-coloured houses which sit amid immaculate terraces of orange and lemon trees stretching as far as the eye can see.
One such town is charming Sóller, a bustling place nestling in a fertile, bowl-shaped valley planted with yet more citrus groves. Within easy reach of the capital, Palma, it makes a great base for walking and exploring in Mallorca’s magnificent north-west corner and beyond using the efficient and widespread local transport system (or inexpensive taxis).
